One of my favorite versions of Give a Little Bit, the timeless classic from the master songwriter and composer Roger Hodgson Cofounder of Supertramp.
"Give a Little Bit has a wonderful message that makes people light up and I get them to sing with me. It really has a message that is very eternal and is needed even more today than it was when I wrote it when I was 19. The song is very simple but yet very powerful. It's all about reaching out and giving and caring." ~ Roger Hodgson
Roger was the creative songwriting force behind many of Supertramp's greatest hits that propelled the band into international fame and recognition, with many of his songs topping the music charts worldwide. It is Roger's distinct voice and instantly recognizable melodies that you are hearing when you listen to his songs, such as The Logical Song, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home, Breakfast in America, School, It's Raining Again, Fool's Overture and so many more.
Roger is on his world tour performing all of the favorites and his magnificent solo material as well - shows are quickly selling out. Go to his tour page to see his latest concert schedule: http://www.rogerhodgson.com/documents...

Some of the wonderful things fans are sharing about Roger's concerts -
"There were smiles. There was joy. There were tears as he sang the songs that helped us through the bad times. The melodies and harmonies can not be replicated except by the master himself.. This, my friends, is the music that connects all of us. It was a dream come true to see him, I suggest all do the same. Mr Hodgson is one of us. Thank you for the memories Roger. God Bless you sir-you have helped more folks than you can imagine with your heartfelt songs."
"Dearest Roger, Your music wells up from the deepest place within a human being, that Silent Feeling Space of Unlimited Love which desires only to Uplift the Hearts of All. Your songs and your sincere, sweet presence are your Gift to Humanity."
"Roger Hodgson's concerts will take you somewhere you haven't been in a very long time.It's truly amazing to know all of the lives he has touched so deeply, few artists have the ability to connect everyone around the world and bring us all together as he does."
